Synergy: …The way things grow

As winter approaches we often reflect on the wonder and beauty of summer. The warmth, the skies, the plants are not gone as winter approaches but found in different forms. We see new challenges as temperatures fall, we engage in different activities to stay grounded
and balanced. We huddle around warm fires together and contemplate the foods we eat, the activities we are planning, the people we will be seeing and helping and future we look forward to.

The seasons provide us with the synergy to continue, rethink and come together. Many thanks to all our community partners in helping our strategy continue to grow throughout Ontario. We look forward to the more ways of working together to reduce fractures within Ontario.

I Fail To Fall: On my path to health

As the year comes to an end, the inevitable comes to mind – another year approaches for us to continue to improve. Time, in this sense, can be summed up as an Amazingly Great Ending (AGE). Our aging population gives us cause to aid each other in moving forward to ensure that improvement happens. We have called upon health care facilities, primary care, community partners and public health to engage with us in reducing fractures and they have walked the path with us. As fall brings change, winter brings thought, spring brings growth and summer brings joy, we relish the beauty of a healthy year.
